What makes Gentoo so awesome is not the scripted install from source,
although that does give you the cleanest, leanest and meanest system you can
get - what makes Gentoo so great is 'Portage', it's Package Management
system.

Read all about it here:

www.gentoo.org/doc/portage-manual.html

and here:

www.gentoo.org/doc/portage-user.html

and here:

www.gentoo.org/doc/use-howto.html

And as I have said in the past, it is still very young, so its only gonna
get better - and its already better than apt-get or ports or anything else
out there.
